There are two options for CLAS students to earn a business minor: The Academic Year Business Minor and the Summer Business Institute. Students considering either of these programs should meet with their primary academic advisor before applying to determine if/how business minor courses may apply to degree or major requirements. Completion of either program may allow students to pursue a discipline-specific business minor or enroll in other VSB courses; VSB approval is required and additional pre-requisite coursework may be necessary.
ACADEMIC YEAR BUSINESS MINOR
The Academic Year Business Minor is designed for full-time undergraduates enrolled in other Villanova colleges. This traditional-year program typically requires four semesters to complete; required courses are part of the VSB core curriculum and are taken alongside VSB students. The admission process for the program is competitive; students must attend an info session prior to applying and are admitted on a yearly basis after spring semester grades are posted. The deadline for applications is May 1; program and application requirements can be found at business.villanova.edu, search Business Minors for Non-Business Students.
SUMMER BUSINESS INSTITUTE (SBI)
The Summer Business Institute (SBI) is a 10 week, full-time, 16-credit program created exclusively for non-business majors. SBI, using a cohort-based model, is an accelerated program designed to be completed in one summer. The admission process for the program is competitive; students are admitted on a rolling basis. The application period is December 1 – April 15. Additional Information, including the application, can be found at business.villanova.edu/sbi
